I have R/A also. Celibrex did squat for me. One Naproxen pill,twice a day works for me. It keeps the pain to a managable level. However my spelling is still crap!
How's your stomach? From my reading Nsaids and antibiotics (I'm taking both) are bad for those with R/A that might be caused by leaky gut....i.e. intestinal permiability problems (which I'm starting to believe is MY problem.) My doc has me taking DGL to help with the stomach problem. And, I'm trying to take Naproxen once every 4 days.....I'm not much fun after the 2nd day!
